Writing Tip
Our monthly writing tips are written by our very own TerishD. You can read more in Terish's Blog located in "The Abstractions" area of the forum.

Look Back

When not able to write ahead, it helps to look back. In my case I had written a paragraph ahead of the story. What I needed to do was add a section of exposition (talking) presenting some facts. In going back, I realized that I could insert a section where a 'tour' of the surroundings could be done. This allowed for character interaction, story development, and other things that enabled me to present the facts in an entertaining manner.

One should not face a writer's block with the mentality of bursting through it. I have found in my own experience that a writer's block is usually due to my mind indicating that it has a problem in 'channeling' the story. One reason might be a re-imagining of certain story points. Another reason however is that there is a problem in where you are at in the story, so you need to look back and find out the problem with the 'journey' that prevents the tale from advancing.

Filling space
This enormous white square is taunting me
daring me to fill its pristine quadrangular
with words to soil its surface and after the dead
send it back to the great non-existing world
Illusion called the internet where life has no
meaning the moment the computer is off.
A place so bleak it is the ultimate nothingness
No god or devil would intrude here lest they
Lose sanity and free them from nil and
Know there is no hell or heaven the promise
Betrayed on the altar of the last lie,
 
Oh, stupid humanity they have to create wars
Something to dies for to give pathetic life  
A meaning dying for a meaningless cause this
Is the dream of virtue of remembrance, but
It is the only gift god, and the devil can give 

Before night falls.
